Vitamin K2 Could Help Prevent Atherosclerosis

| February 10, 2016 | Comments (0)

Last week, I told you about a recent review, published in the journal Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology, which has shown that patients taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs are more likely to suffer from hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis). Talk about defeating the purpose… Here’s a drug, prescribed to millions of people across the world that […]

Hidden Sugar In “Health Foods” Destroys Your Heart Health

| May 14, 2015 | Comments (0)

That’s because along with the mainstream’s misguided dietary guidelines to avoid saturated fat at all costs, there’s also been a massive increase in the amount of ‘low-fat’ food products flooding supermarket shelves. You’d be forgiven for thinking that perhaps Big Food might have largely influenced government dietary guidelines, instead of them being founded on scientific […]

No Evidence That Ezetimibe Benefits Health

| December 20, 2012 | Comments (0)

Ezetimibe is an effective cholesterol-reducing drug (it works by blocking cholesterol absorption from the gut). The fact that ezetimibe is effective for reducing cholesterol was enough for regulatory authorities in the US, UK and elsewhere to grant it a licence. Since then, billions of dollars have been spent on ezetimibe. Yet, to date, we do […]

| November 22, 2012 | Comments (2)

Perusing the British Medical Journal recently, I came across a letter from a general practitioner (family physician) responding to an article regarding the side effects of statins.

A recent report from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), in the US, recommends that all children aged 9-11 should be screened for raised cholesterol levels. The report recommended that this should be repeated at age 17-21 too. Last month, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a critique of these recommendations, written […]

Yet Another Study Challenges The Cholesterol Hypothesis

To coincide with ‘Cholesterol Week’ in the UK, we recently had a rash of ‘news’ stories reminding us about the supposed perils of this fat. See here for an example in one of the UK’s broadsheet newspapers. This story is I think an attempt by Unilever (manufacturer of Flora pro.activ) to get more people to […]

Drugs, drugs, drugs and then some more… This is all the mainstream has come up with in their efforts to prevent cardiovascular disease.
